Considering their friendship bonds over the years and their commitment to help throughout the wedding plan and on the day, we agree that bridesmaids deserve to be spoiled with some nice and thoughtful invitation gift. It’s not just a card, it’s an ultimate invitation suite that will be cherished and remembered through the time.

Pretty Pastel Wedding Gift

Love is in the air! Another close friend announced she will get married next month. What an exciting news! The sad thing I could not make it this time, very annoying. However, I prepare something special and sweet for her to commemorate her big day.

Something blue…

First decision is colour! I will use her favourite pink colour mix with pastel blue as it often associates with wedding theme. I am having a big crush with these flattering candy colours. I mock up my inspiration moodboard with colour pantone guide.

I can imagine this gift will be utterly feminine with pastel and materials I have prepared: paper doilies, pink fancy paper, pastel pink and blue paper flower, light blue cupcake liners, lace ribbon.

Something personal…

As always, I wanted to bring personal touch into the gift, so a personalised jewellery with their own stamp would make a lovely keepsake. In addition, I repeated  the initial C&S on cute pink heart shaped.

 A beautiful rose gold monogram necklace from Anna Lou of London.

I planned the task that needs to be done- envelope, message card and initials ornament. For envelope, you can buy a textured pink envelope or make one from this template below. Adjust the size as you want, mine is refer to the size of doilies as an envelope line. Try to put the doilies in, see if it is perfectly fit.

Staple all together and stick it at the left corner. Tie with lace ribbon to make sure it won’t move.

Something memorable…

The final touch, I wrote a handwritten message for her on a piece of cardboard. Also, stick the initial printable on gold foil cupcake liner to give colour accents. Attach the ornament at the back of message card.
